Macro Photography Workshop with Mike Matthews
Saturday, November 4th - 10:00 am to1:00 pm


Join us at Murphy’s Camera for a hands-on class as Mike Matthews demonstrates some great ways to get amazing macro/close up photos of amazing subjects.

Macro photography is Mike's passion, and he teaches on this topic all over the US. To him the greatest thing about macro photography is the subject matter is endless, and you can photograph 24/7 365 days of the year. 
Mike will teach you how to get tack sharp images every time with the use of flash, and how to approach your subject to get award winning images. 
Topics we cover are including but not limited to...
  • How to use flash perfectly when only inches from your subject.
  • How to get maximum depth of field and sharpness for small subjects.
  • How to protect the highlights from blowing out in your pictures.

We suggest a Macro lens or some way of focusing very close, such as extension tubes used with a telephoto lens. Some sort of flash system, ring flash, speed light flash or twin flash. Memory cards, and extra batteries for flashes.

Tripods are not needed but feel free to bring one if you would like.
The workshop is open to people of all skill levels and experience.
An Interchangable lens camera is ideal but not required for this class.

Cost of the workshop: $79 limited to 25 participants

Prerequisite for the workshop: Love for photography
